Church hymns are beautiful pieces of music, made even more brilliant when sung by someone with a powerful voice.

One particular country girl by the name of Mary Sarah has the voice of an angel, which makes her performance of "How Great Thou Art" a pleasure to watch.

"How Great Thou Art" is a traditional Christian hymn based on an old Swedish melody and a poem written by Carl Gustav Boberg. The poem was translated into German, Russian, and eventually English, before becoming a hymn.

Today's Christian Magazine ranked the song as the #2 best hymn of all time, with "Amazing Grace" claiming the #1 spot. 

Many notable country artists have sung the hymn in the past, including Alan Jackson, Dolly Parton, and Carrie Underwood

Mary Sarah has been singing for some time, and regularly posts videos of her performances to her personal YouTube channel. 

The performance in the video below was during one of the Flora-Bama Church's "worship on the water" services. The Flora-Bama Church is a non-denominational bar church in Pensacola, Florida, where beach attire is welcome.

Mary Sarah opts out of wearing beach attire for her performance, wearing a sundress with blue flowers and a necklace the shape of Texas

Before she starts singing, Mary Sarah introduces the song, and encourages the crowd to sing along with her.

Mary Sarah's rendition of the song starts out soft, sweet, and simple. The crowd is so in awe of her performance that they forget about singing along and don't make a single sound

Toward the end of the song, Mary Sarah's voice climbs higher and higher, until she's basically belting out the final notes. The amount of control and power in her voice is clear in this moment, as she holds out the last note above the cheers of the crowd.

"How awesome was that?" the preacher asks the crowd, to which they respond with more loud cheers and applause.

Mary Sarah is happy to see that so many people enjoyed her performance, and she drops into a small curtsey in recognition of their applause. 

This sweet country girl's rendition of "How Great Thou Art" is so captivating, you'll find yourself listening to it over and over again.

LYRICS BELOW

O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

And when I think of God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And lead me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow with humble adoration,
And then proclaim, "My God, how great Thou art!"

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
